Elam doesn't seem that good in coverage. He looks great at coming up to rush the passer or for run defense.. I can't find any highlights where he has great coverage.
ETA: He does complete tackles and make hard hits though. I think he could be pretty good in the NFL, but we need cover guys. Not worth reaching to a not-so-needy position in the 2nd or 3rd when he doesn't fit our exact needs.

Saw a Rotoworld mock draft where the Saints picked Mingo and mentioned Oregon's Dion Jordan as another possibility. They had Elam going late in the first. Mike D thinks even Sam Montgomery could be available there.
